SENS6 Conference Registration Open

Registration for the forthcoming SENS6 conference is now open. To get a sense of how this conference series runs and the noteworthy folk who attend, you might take a look at the recorded presentations or list of abstracts from SENS5, held in 2011:

You are cordially invited to participate in the sixth Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) Conference, which will be held from 3rd - 7th September, 2013 at Queens' College, Cambridge.

The purpose of the SENS conference series, like all the SENS initiatives (such as the journal Rejuvenation Research), is to expedite the development of truly effective therapies to postpone and treat human aging by tackling it as an engineering problem: not seeking elusive and probably illusory magic bullets, but instead enumerating the accumulating molecular and cellular changes that eventually kill us and identifying ways to repair - to reverse - those changes, rather than merely to slow down their further accumulation. This broadly defined regenerative medicine - which includes the repair of living cells and extracellular material in situ - applied to damage of aging, is what we refer to as rejuvenation biotechnologies.

The meeting will comprise invited talks, short oral presentations of submitted abstracts, and poster sessions. There will be no concurrent sessions. Talks will take place in the Fitzpatrick Lecture Hall. Poster sessions will take place each evening in the conservatory adjacent to the bar. The conference will also feature the traditional punting on the Cam: an hour on the Backs for the faint-hearted, and an afternoon or evening trip to Grantchester for the rest of us.

There's gonna be some interesting talks, and the great majority of speakers are already known and can be checked here: http://sens.org/outreach/conferences/sens6/program
I'm hoping though that some breakthrough research emerges before the conference so that we can hear about some major progress made in that field.
